When the domestic real gdp per capita increases then it has a negative effect on domestic currency (depreciation)? Why?

    $\begingroup$ The article's abstract seems to say the opposite, that an excessively high real exchange rate damages GDP. A major cause is that it makes domestic production uncompetitive domestically (imports will be cheaper) and internationally (exports will be too expensive). Why go on holiday to Greece when Turkey gives you similar beaches and sun for a lower price? $\endgroup$ – Henry Jul 6 '19 at 23:05
  • $\begingroup$ What you said is about the effect of reer on Gdp, but my question is related about the effect of gdp rate on reer. So, in my opinion as gdp increases, the exchange rate appreciates that also decreases the exports which means the depreciation of currency. So higher gdp can lead to depreciation of currency? $\endgroup$ – Josh Jul 7 '19 at 1:27

    $\begingroup$ Is it merely your opinion that, "When the domestic real gdp per capita increases then it has negative effect on domestic currency"? If so, you should not attribute this statement to your "Source". $\endgroup$ – user18 Jul 7 '19 at 2:31

One way to link both is the J curve reaction of a given country's trade balance, which directly affects GDP, towards fluctuations in the domestic currency exchange rate.
